The last time I was in Kauai, I saw the most magnificent tree in Old Koloa Town on the island’s sunny south shore. Its canopy of branches spreads over a tiny red-paneled art gallery in a grand display that took my breath away. We sat on a bench while eating our shave ice and marveled at its presence, grateful for its shade.

I love the interplay of lines in this snapshot: the contrast between the loose, organic lines of the curvy and wiry branches in the top half of the frame and the straight, man-made lines of the building underneath.

This week, share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature or as part of a cityscape. We look forward to seeing your interpretations!

  1. Stunning! I’m still staring at it. Great picture. How wonderful it must have been to “be” there and feel the trees presence. Good for you! Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. I love this photo. What a beautiful tree! Very cool how you’ve contrasted the branches of the tree and the house below. The lines in the aluminum roof are a plus. I love the ripple lines of the roof at the edge.
